2012 Battle Re-enactment Programme @ Prestonpans

As ever a bold programme is scheduled ... and at a changed venue!

The 2012 venue for the Battle Re-enactments will be Greenhills, the beautiful grassed area between the Pans and Cockenzie Power Station. Whilst it's a wee bit farther away from The Gothenburg it's closer to the original field of battle. This year the Battle Trust is seeking to defray some of the 10,000 fixed costs involved - the re-enactors are all volunteers - by suggesting a Donation of 2 from those attending.

The posters and flyers give the details but this year has some 'unusual' highlights. First there's the SKULL of a redcoat injured at the battle that will be on display at Prestongrange Museum along with several cohorts of our famous Battle Tapestry; second there's a fine BRONZE MEDAL for those who Walk the Riggonhead Defile at 5AM on Saturday morning and make it back to The Gothenburg for breakfast; third, the award-winning Preston Lodge Pipes and Drums will be making their first appearance at the re-enactments! But these are just a few highlights. As the programme shows there's much much more to be enjoyed and learnt!

P.S. And of course there's the traditional Ceilidh on Saturday night as well.
